Live dive on historic Japanese mini submarines near Pearl Harbor

On the morning of December 7, 1941, U.S. naval vessels and aircraft on patrol outside Pearl Harbor spotted a partially submerged submarine trying to enter the harbor. Ninety minutes before Pearl Harbor was bombed by air, the destroyer USS Ward fired on the mini submarine, sinking the sub. The event marks the first U.S. shots fired and the country’s entry into World War II in the Pacific. The Okeanos Explorer is diving on the wreck of this submarine.
